    Couple birds. Green wing hen is a hunting bird. Bluebill is a discard. Lamination split. I use a woodburner to do fine featherwork. Workers are kept smooth. I use spruce from up here in Alaska. Used to use redwood when I lived in Oregon and NorCal. When I was stationed in South Dakota I used alot of white pine. 1541479311125-2118234793.jpg 1541479311125-2118234793.jpg 1541479350728-155282406.jpg

    Teal drake of each species sit on top of my desk at work. I have to make grooved stands for the oak keels to set in. Makes for an easy way to display working birds. 20181101_074733.jpg

    Billy Bob,
    After approx 34 years of collecting dust, the ol boy got to finally float.
    It didnt have a keel, so I screwed one on and let him enjoy a sunrise with his plastic cousins and he got to see a few ducks shot.
    My landscaping timber decoy will retire to the basement and maybe in 50 years my kids will sell him for $1,000,000.
    I hope you enjoyed your hunt Chernobyl Charlie.
